Pybliographer 0.9.4

Tagged:  

many bug fixes listed at the Pybliographer site covering the last time it was posted here (v0.7, I think) and this one. Please note also that on the page the author states "I really look for people interested in contributing on this. I will have much less time to devote to this project, so if you think it's worth, please consider helping me."

free Z39.50 implementations page -- who knows one?

the LOC Z39.50 Software page has been up a long time, but is probably ready for someone to do a comparison. can anyone recommend any of these tools (at least one is under GPL)? i'd love to be able to plug MARC.pm onto ZETA, for instance, and pull data out for Jake... anyone tried something similar?

jake-0.3.2

Tagged:  

A new data release, with CIC and several other databases added, and minor stylesheet bugfixes. All of which is available from the usual jake.med.yale.edu (see all about jake for details and downloads).

XMLMARC-1.0

Tagged:  

seen on many lists recently is XMLMARC, a "Java client/server program [which] converts MARC to XML based on flexible maps and simplified, yet detailed DTDs for bibliographic and authorities formats." Its license is free for non-commercial use but requires consent for redistribution, and their broader experiment is described here. They seem to be aware of MARC.pm... it would be great to see a side-by-side feature comparison of the two.

Prospero-1.34: ALERT

Eric S. writes in: "Important: Versions prior to 1.33 contained in the file "getdoc.pl" a potentially serious security threat. Malicious Web users could submit a modified document request to "getdoc.pl" that could provide the Web user with the contents of important files or even provide them will local shell access if the script is running on a system that provides such access. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND updating to version 1.34 [available at:] bones.med.ohio-state.edu/prospero/. Thanks also go to John C. for finding the hole and supplying the patch.

SIXPACK-0.99(=0.0.5)

Tagged:  

can't says I understand the version numbersing scheme, but from the changelog it appears they've fixed a number of bugs and added many features. For more see the SIXPACK site.

Adam Chandler writes in about the Thompson-Nicolo Regional District Library System Web Based Catalogue, a web catalog (sp!) front end with freeware indexing and z39.50 pieces on the back end. Has anyone else tried this?
